I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but it's amazing how calm I feel right now.

Leading up to starting social transition has been a whirlwind, but there's now very little to do before I go back to university. I just feel this strange, gentle calm surrounding me.

Things that used to terrify me, like shopping in person, are suddenly nothing. I'm walking up to makeup counters like I've done it all my life.

Did anyone else feel this as their transition progressed?

I'm not even worried about the new term now. Everyone has known I'm trans for months. I feel like just making light of it when I walk into class in my dress. "Morning, I'm the new girl."
